Brief description Acquired communication disorder (ACD) is a common result of stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) and has a devastating impact on victims’ everyday lives. Stroke and TBI occur more than twice as frequently in Indigenous as in non-Indigenous populations, but current uptake of communication rehabilitation services is low and long term outcomes for the individuals are unknown. This Australian first study will examine the extent and impact of ACD in urban and rural Indigenous Australians.
